San Antonio Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge limped to the locker room in the first half against the Washington Wizards with a left knee contusion. Unfortunately, Aldridge appeared to suffer a minor knee injury against the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night and did not return to what was eventually a Spurs loss.

Aldridge underwent an MRI exam earlier Wednesday that showed no structural damage to his knee. The San Antonio spurs are now the 6th team in the west with a 43-32 win-loss record.

If Aldridge is able to go, he has been solid in two previous games versus the Thunder this season, totaling 37 points and 16 rebounds. He has averaged 11.5 points and 7.2 rebounds in 13 games versus the Spurs spanning the last four seasons, posting three double-doubles and shooting 61.8 percent in that stretch.

After the game, Manu Ginobili expressed how important Aldridge has been to San Antonio this season, as he states if the 32-year-old misses any games, they are in trouble as they have many hard games ahead. Hopefully, it's not serious because it's going to be really tough to score without him and we have tough games against teams that need to win.

"We've gotta work to get to the playoffs".

Oklahoma City has been a streaky team all season, but since February 14 the Thunder have put together a fairly consistent 12-5 SU and 7-9-1 ATS run. They're potentially in a more precarious spot, sitting sixth in the West with Utah, Minnesota, Denver and the Los Angeles Clippers all within reach behind them. The fact that the Spurs have several key injuries and they are on short rest after a road game makes beating a well-rested Thunder team playing with a chip on their shoulder a tall order. "We really need him", Ginobili said ahead of the game, via ESPN.

If Aldridge was to miss any time and the Spurs' season was to collapse in these final remaining regular season games as a result, it would be the first time they miss out on the playoffs since the 1996-97 season.
